has never even passed a budget. it is the rule in the law that by april 15th, you have to. so, we're saying we will extend the debt limit until the timeline where you have a budget, a road map. so you stop digging yourself in the hole that we get out of this problem. part of not having the budget has gotten us into this problem in the first place. >> the senate is the already operating under the 2011 budget control act. so demanding the senate pass a budget really doesn't do anything. it also violates the so-called boehner rule, which requires any bill to have cuts equal to the rise in the debt ceiling. well, republicans are making up for this by saying congress will get paid -- will not get paid unless the senate passes a budget. let's investigate this a little bit. even republican congressman darryl issa knows it's a violation of the 27th amendment not to pay congress. when told about the plan, issa said that's unconstitutional. he wants a paycheck. now republicans are claiming the plan will just withhold pay for -- from congress. so all of them will get paid no matter what. wha

to acquire fortune brands would have to be done later in the year because of arcane tax laws. that's the caveat. still, the timing. we are now witnessing a fabulous housing rebound, something i've been talking about a lot lately because of it's incredible staying power. we're not going back to the days of the housing bubble. but new household formation exploded in 2012, to a million new households and there is still pent up demand for homes that can give us multiple years of upside. now housing starts are on the rise in a big way. take a look at this chart. look how far we can go, for heaven's sake. housing starts going back to 1989. see the huge uptick in 2004? i wouldn't be proposing this marriage if 2013 wouldn't be better. we're right at the beginning of a cycle that masco and fortune brands benefit from in a major way. you need paint and insulation, masco makes that. you need doors and windows and locks. the same is true if you want to sell your old home. the easiest way to fix it up is to remodel with new installations. with housing prices rising across the country, now is th

, he would not stand in the way of the bill becoming law. >> this is the president trying to resolve the jitters of the market over this and the potential threat to the economy. we have to first see whether or not house republicans can pass this proposal. there is some uncertainty about that. one member of congress told me he thought some members on the right might take it down. once that happens, we have to see what happens in the senate. clearly the president is sending a positive signal of encouragement to republicans that this is the kind of compromise i'm looking for. >> john, we were saying this at the top of the show, it's short-term spackle. it is not solving anything at all. we're pushing it out, kicking it down the road. >> that is true, but it's significant that the republicans broke the link between raising the debt limit and dollar for dollar spending reductions. john boehner articulated that principle in 2011. that became a huge barrier to the debt limit in 2011, because getting those cuts identified was very difficult, would probably be impossible now. that's why the p

laws in this country. how much a part of the president's resolve will that be in the months coming? >> well, the thing -- the president always said that, you know, you have to do many things at once when you're president, and that's a very important thing. we can't keep replicating these tragedies and it's not just the big tragedies, but the small, smaller strategy dtragedies than the streets every day. so he's determined to move forward on this package of laws. they're not the only things we need to do. some of the things have less to do with government and more to do with what we -- what we do in our home. what our children play and in terms of video games and what they watch. but certainly we need to do something about guns. we are hopeful that we're at a moment when we can pass the impasse that we have seen in the past and really move forward on it. >> hey, david, bob schieffer here. >> hey, bob. >> in normal times, probably we wouldn't report this, but in these fractured times this just in as they say. i'm told that speaker boehner, eric cantor, the number two republican in th

and passing them into law, but instead of paying for them immediately, they give the treasury the power to borrow money to pay the bills. virtually used nowhere else in the world. last year the u.s. government spent $3.8 trillion. two-thirds of that roughly came from revenue. that's mostly taxes, $2.5 trillion. rest was a shortfall. we had to boar reit. $1. 3 trillion. that is the deficit. you take the sum total of those annual deficits and enter oast on them and that creates the national debt which right now is about 16.4 and change trillion dollars. now, the u.s. treasury is empowered to borrow money to make up the shortfall between revenue and expenses, the deficit. but only up to a certain limit. that's the debt ceiling. treasury does not make decisions about how the money is spent. they are simply empowered in this case to write the checks to pay the bills that are already incurred by your democratically elected congress. now that we've hit the debt limit, exceeded it a little bit, the treasury has two options. they can fiddle around with $200 billion the way you would if you're a

background checks. >> the law already requires licensed gun dealers to run background checks. over the last 14 years, that kept 1.5 million of the wrong people from getting their hands on a gun but it is hard to enforce that law when as many as 40% of all gun purchases are conducted without a background check. >> house speaker john boehner put out a statement on all of this said, quote, house committees of jurisdiction will review these recommendations and if the senate pass as bill, we will also take a look at that. speaker boehner knows that getting 60 votes for any major sweeping new gun control legislation will be difficult to get in the senate. david and liz. david: peter barnes in d.c. thanks, peter. liz: with talks of gun control let's look how some big name gun companies are performing right now. first smith & wesson. this of course is the firearms manufacturer, the stocks saw really significant bump of nearly 6%, putting this into perspective, fallen more than 14% in the wake of shootings at the school. arum ruger and company engages in the design, manufacturing and sale of firearm
